Mbatha talks up Usuthu’s ambitions

AmaZulu FC goalkeeper Siyabonga Mbatha believes that the team is strong enough to secure a top eight-finish in the Absa Premiership come the end of the 2017/18 season.

Usuthu have made a promising start to the current campaign recording two wins, two draws and two defeats which sees them placed seventh on the league standings with eight points.

Mbatha, who started the team’s last two matches, believes that the KwaZulu-Natal giants will finish in the top half of the table if they are consistent.

“We have a strong team and I honestly think that we can achieve something special this season,” Mbatha told

“We have the quality to challenge for a top eight finish in the league and in football – anything is possible.

“So, I believe that a top eight finish is achievable for us this season. We just need to fight as a team and be consistent,” the former Bloemfontein Celtic shot-stopper added.

The 2017 Telkom Knockout Cup is set to take place later this year and Mbatha has stressed the importance of the lucrative tournament which features 16 top-flight teams.

“There’s also the Telkom Knockout Cup which is coming up very soon. A chance to win some silverware,” the 28-year-old goal-minder said.

“A good cup run could take us to the final. It would be great to have some cup success too this season,” he concluded.
